Episode #187: Nation-states, whiny Jews, 3-percenters

Semitic crisis hits the Twilight Lounge this week after Rosen reveals that his wife finds Woody Allen movies “whiny and unwatchable,” causing her husband to wonder if she’s aware who she married. Fortunately, the boys bounce back, turning their attention to 3-percenter Paul Ryan and Jew-hating English politicians before Rosen pushes all the furniture to the walls, giving Goldbrener all the room he needs to answer:

Is Israel’s “nation-state law” good for the Jews?

The answer, which comes as almost an afterthought following 30 minutes of close analysis of present-day Israeli politics and the risks inherent in the nation’s recent choices, may surprise you.

If this looks familiar, you are old.
